Fun filled weekend

My weekend started off on Friday, I took Peepers to see Dora and Diego. We arrived at our destination , I think along with every other cheap parent in town that opted for the free visit instead of the more fun option you had to pay for later in the evening. We walked in and I spotted them, I thought this isn't so bad. We walked right up to them, too bad it was the END (exit) of the line. I looked to where the kids were coming from that were visiting Dora and Diego and followed with it to where it ended. Peepers did a wonderful job waiting 50 mins. , she was so excited. We got about 4 families away so I picked her up so she could see them. She started yelling, saying 'HI Dora.' Finally we were one family away, YAY!! Dora went on BREAK. What? Are you kidding me? Oh well, she likes Diego just as much. Finally our turn comes up and she is scared, she wants nothing to do with him now. I talked her into having her picture taken but I had to hold her.
She was just as happy with the sucker they gave her and the fact we were going to pick up the Diva and her friend.

On Saturday the Diva, her friend, and Peepers went and stayed with Ma and the Mouse with her Grandpa so Cookie and I could go to our favorite bar which was hosting a poker run for childrens cancer. Cookie had to work so I opeted to ride with a friend. I arrived at the bar about 10:30 am, and started drinking (I hadn't yet eaten so it didn't take much to feel it).
My friendly little bartender:)

I had plans to get a lot of pics but I fell short in that department. I was too busy talking to everyone I hadn't seen in awhile because I have been all about school. All in all, it was a great day. There were 200 riders that showed up to support the cause and many more later when we returned.
This is our friend that was nice enough to let me ride with him. Although, he could have told me my hair was all funked up. By the time we got back (3 and 1/2 hrs later), my butt was sore. Still is. (Hey Keeper, do you recognize him?)
I stayed for about another hour and a half with my sister then I came home to nap (I wasn't letting the kidless thing go without a nap). Cookie stayed and worked (I think he was just really drinking) until 10pm. I had to go pick him up in my pajama's.
It turned out to be a wonderful weekend all around.

I have a granddaughter who does not like any of those oversized characters except Belle. They have annual passes to Disneyland, and if any of those 3 Little Pigs, Goofy or even Minnie gets near her she screams or freezes.

Good for you on the Poker Run for Pediatric Cancer...a charity I raise funds for due to my grandson being a leukemia survivor. We never take our blessings for granted...never ever.

I don't know what it is (maybe the sheer size?) but kids get all excited until they get close to the larger-than-life characters. It must be that it's just overwhelming when they are up close & personal. They kinda freak me out too, lol.

That sounds like an awesome weekend and I would have done the same as Peepers if I had seen Dora and Diego that close up!!!

I was wondering if you might be willing to mention my raffle/fundraiser (or just let me comment about it here so others can read about it).

I would NOT ask if it wasn't for a great cause. Plus, there are over 90 donated prizes to win totaling over $3000.00! And who doesn't like to win??

It's really a win-win for everyone. People get to help me meet my fundraising goal AND potentionally win big.

Saturday was the 6th anniversary of my Dad's heart transplant. I am more determined than ever to give back in a big way.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE clickover and enter my raffle!! You can truly win TONS OF PRIZES (totaling over $3000.00 - gift cards, Starbucks coffee maker, $600 in camping equipment, gorgeous jewelry and more).

It's for a great cause….

6 years ago my Dad received a new heart.

This is my way of giving back.
